About

Alan Mazzetti

Acrylic on Panel

Alan Mazzetti is a contemporary artist living and working in San Francisco California, specializing in abstracted landscapes and cityscapes. As a second generation artist and Californian, he is strongly attracted to the many visual delights of the Bay Area and has developed a unique approach to depicting them in his acrylic paintings.

Re-locating to San Francisco from his native Santa Barbara, Alan studied at the Academy of Art College in the mid-70’s, concentrating on Graphic Design and Illustration. Since 1979, he as been working as an independent designer and artist, initially focusing on designing logos, posters, collateral print material, packaging and book jackets, working with typography. This experience continues to inform his paintings. Ten years of graphic design eventually evolved into the next ten years of illustration work, as he was increasingly attracted to developing a more personal pictorial style. The fine art he has been doing since the mid 90’s is now totally self-directed in both subject and style.

Alan’s fine art was originally an extension of his Illustration work, using collage and photo-transfer imagery to describe his environment, primarily urban scenes from San Francisco and from his travels.  Still intrigued with the idea of “essentials” this imagery was gradually edited down to basic shapes, colors and textures, leading to geometric abstractions.  These paintings were exhibited and sold through galleries and consultants in San Francisco, Palm Desert, Tucson, Washington DC, Boston, and other cities.

Around 2010, the abstract paintings developed “horizon lines” and while still non-representational, suggested the natural forms of landscapes.  With no shortage of subject matter in the Bay Area, or in frequent trips to southern California, Alan is now concentrating on making his landscapes and cityscapes more cohesive, more identical in style. He continues to participate in various solo and group exhibitions.
